Stay-on-Track Summer Reading Volunteers Needed!

We are looking for tutors. We have many in our community needing help with English as a Second Language and also struggling youth readers. You need to be at least 16, committed to helping a student 30 minutes twice a week and you will probably need to spend another hour for lesson preparations. We have all the materials you will need in the Literacy Office located in the basement of Brigham City Library including: sight word lists, family word groups, games and activities, books for your student to read to you and books you can read to your student. When you see the Literacy room you might wonder if it’s all about fun and games—just about. We want people to know reading opens a world of possible when you can engage a person’s interest and needs. See the front desk for an application form and instructions. 

(Just a thought: if you have a neighbor that would like to switch off tutoring different weeks or one of you for the beginning of the week one takes the middle of the week. You could work that out together and both of you would need to apply and let me know you are doing the tutor duo plan.)

Background check needed for those over 18. Our library has the details. Would you commit to two months with the understanding both you and your student’s family will be taking a vacation? It’s easier than you think and makes such a huge difference.

Family Reading Team Time

Schedule your Family Reading Team Time.

Reading is all about family involvement—motivate your children to practice reading just as you have them practice sports.

 

Volunteers are always needed to help adults, English language learners, and children.

Contact Linda Ashcraft at literacy@brighamcity.utah.gov to find out more about volunteer opportunites in literacy and ESL.

 

 

 

 

Literacy Book Drive

I recently knew someone on a crusade to help individuals in poverty. They were busy collecting, blankets, clothing and toiletries to donate. A worker at St Ann’s in Ogden told her if you really want to help these people—then volunteer to teach them to read. Then they can get themselves out of poverty.
